So how do you pronounce 'PSTSCCH'?

Level 65
Jul 14, 2015
Like, a rapsy, wispy voice telling someone to hush?

Or like tap water running down from the faucet?

Maybe you just learned how to say the letter 'p' but weird letters follow?

Level 47

It is an acronym, in fact. The first 3 letters come from my first name, and the rest 4 letters come from my faculty and my department in my undergrad study.

You will never get Comoros from only C, M, O, and R. Instead, you will get only Comoro.

wow the comoros one, ok, at first glance/instinct you might think yea! then ow wait no.. it's 5. But Afghanistan??? Why not Equitorial Guinea while you are at it? Or the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Afghanistan has 8 different letters, even if you cut of the stan part you would still have 6 letters!

Ahh looking at the letters he choose ( I was wondering why specifically those, a f g h would make more sense for instance) I think he meant any country that contain those letters, regardless if they contain other letters

Does Aruba count?

+1
Level 55
Sep 19, 2016
Aruba isn't officialy a country.
+1
Level 67
Apr 7, 2020
It officially is actually. It is just not considered a sovereign nation, as it is part of a kingdom. And jetpunk only uses sovereign nations in their quizzes. A quiz's selection process does not change the fact is something is a country or not.

Level 57
Oct 7, 2021
The word country is sometimes (often) used as synonym for sovereign nation.

Nov 19, 2016
Just to clarify something, Togo and Fiji, despite their 4-letter lengths, use only 3 letters as there are repeated letters.

Tahiti is also the largest island of French Polynesia so even if it were a country, it would be Polynesia and not Tahiti
